West – January 2023 – General News

Judges Comments

Each of our winners in General News offered viewers engaging and insightful content in a single frame. First place winner of the mayoral candidate is about the best image possible from an event like that. Kudos to the photographer for capturing the immediacy of the situation and the emotion of the moment. Second place, too, where the photographer's proximity to the subject elevated the photo as a winner. The caption of the third place winner made it a clear selection. Diligence paid off for the photographer as a moment coincidentally illustrating the story line unfolded near the end of a two-hour meeting.
